Pole Barns vs. Portable Garages

When it comes to storage solutions for vehicles, equipment and materials you have several options. Two of which are pole barns and portable garage buildings. Each has pros and cons and it really depends on your unique needs to determine which is best.

While portable garages are inexpensive and durable even the strongest garage building can be damaged in heavy wind and storm-like conditions. Portable garages are ideal for storing products for short periods of time but these buildings can't always be counted on to weather bad winters.

Pole barns, on the other hand, are fixed structures that stand a much better chance of withstanding foul weather than a portable garage. As long as your pole barn kit is built properly you should not have to worry about wind, rain or snow.

Unfortunately, pole barns are prone to theft. It may seem odd but because these buildings are not fixed to the ground, rather secured with stakes that can be easily uprooted, it is not uncommon to hear stories of owners who have had their portable garages stolen during the night or while they were on vacation. Some thieves may just take the tarp cover but others can lift the entire structure and ride off.

Pole barns aren't going anywhere. The solid construction ensures that these buildings are safe and sound. If you live in a neighborhood that is rather busy and perhaps a bit dangerous, using a portable garage can be risky. However, a pole barn is a safe option for solving your storage needs.
